Workshop Overview | Grand Teton National Park Photo Tour
Come join us for an amazing photography adventure in Grand Teton National Park during the fall season. It's the perfect time to capture the park's stunning beauty as the trees turn vibrant shades of red, orange, and gold and snow starts dusting the mountains. We'll bring you to both iconic and off the beaten path photography locations including where Ansel Adams stood and photographed his famous "Tetons and Snake River". We will explore the still waters of Schwabacher's landing and the famous barns of the "Mormon Row" and always look to see the wildlife that surrounds them. We will often see moose, elk, buffalo, grizzly bears and more. We make the most of the light, weather, and conditions to make sure you will be in the prime spot at the right time to capture the majestic beauty of the Grand Tetons.
We'll help you learn how to use your camera to take fantastic pictures and show you how to frame the perfect shots. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced photographer, our guides will give you personalized tips and help you take home a collection of breathtaking pictures. You'll get to experience the magic of fall in the Tetons and create lasting memories. All skill levels and equipment welcome!
